The report gives results of experiments to explain the high resistivity behavior of hot-side electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) collecting fly ash. The working hypothesis is that the behavior is the result of the buildup of a thin layer of sodium-ion-depleted fly ash which has a high electrical resistivity near the collector plate. The hypothesis was tested by experiments in a miniature corona discharge device under thermal and environmental conditions simulating a hot-side ESP. Current density-voltage curves were taken with positive-negative corona using a hand-placed ash layer 5 mm thick. Three major experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect on current density-voltage relationships of: long exposure to negative corona, long exposure to positive corona, and cyclic exposure to negative and positive corona.
